On this page we highlight personal selections of themed books.
What’s in the Shop Window?
We aim to keep our shop displays interesting and changing. In the same way as we feature eclectic selections of themed books in our windows and on our front table, this page brings the same kind of curation to our website shop.
A signed copy makes a great gift.
Signed copies and special editions
We often have extra signed copies after author visits to the shop. And we have good contacts with publishers who sometimes supply us with signed copies. There are limited supplies of these books so available can change quickly.

This is a personal selection of some great science fiction novels published over the last ten years or so, together with one or two ground breaking books from times past.
